Clouthier and Avenida del Sol in the San Fernando section, were several heavily armed gunmen on board a gray Chevrolet pickup, Captiva, with license plates VLP-4371 from the state of Sinaloa. Before the report, the military forces were near the site conducting routine patrols, as soon as the report came in they rushed to the area previously mentioned.

The suspects, realizing the presence of the military, began to flee on board the pickup, which was reported as stolen on April 8, 2011 in Culiacán.

The first paragraph doesn't really make sense, but way better than anything outside of a food order that I could do in Espanol. Were these bad guys rescued from other bad guys or from the army?

Thanks for posting. The computer translation is cool, kind of like a puzzle. Nice. Its my understanding that in the media there often uses "armed commando" as code for the military. Does this mean one part of the military took the prisoners from another branch?

The high level drug dealers in the US and Mexico and their governmental tentacles are reaping a terrible havoc.

Its worrisome to find that narcos have M203s and rounds for them. I sure hope that they never get a hold of a MK19. Lord knows, they already have Barrett and M2.50 cals as well as RPGs and LAWs thanks to the corrupt folks in Central America.
